    I've been reading a bit of philosophy lately, and while I've enjoyed most of what I've read, some things have been more enjoyable than others.

    I really enjoyed Thus Spoke Zarathustra, and I'm currently reading The Seducer's Diary and feeling the same. These examples differ from a lot of the other things that I've read in that they have a clear narrative, rather than simply discussing concepts.

    I've tried finding recommendations based on lists like the ones that Goodreads populates based on a title, but it suggests anything remotely relevant and they typically don't tell a story as I'd like.

    Can anyone suggest any philosophical works that also have a story element?

    "The way of Trade" Tadao Yamaguchi - Short philosophical stories. I think you can find them on Amazon. Not sure if this is something you are looking for.

    Currently Reading:
    The Road to Character; David Brooks
    Nicomachean Ethics by Aristotle. Definitely some great stuff there.

    I've just finished The Existential Café by Sarah Bakewell.
    It is a readable historical narrative of the development of modern existential philosophy -- which makes an interesting story line for getting up to speed in the area.

    Also, you might add Plato's Republic to the Aristotle already mentioned.
